Taco Bell Drops Several Meat Dishes To Make Space For Vegan Options

by | July 19, 2020

International fast food chain Taco Bell has dropped a number of meat and cheese options from the menu, sharing that it will now look to develop plant-based options.

The chain has removed 12 items from the menu, such as the 7-Layer Burrito and the Beefy Fritos Burrito, in addition to all of its potato dishes.

“Room For New Fan Favorites”

“We know some vegetarian go-to items might be gone, but Taco Bell’s menu remains highly customizable,” shared the brand.

“While change is hard, a simplified menu and innovation process will leave room for new fan favorites, continued progress in categories such as plant-based diets, and even opportunities for the return of some classics on a limited-time basis.”

“Don’t forget to lookout for the vegetarian symbol on menus to indicate vegetarian products, and remember you can swap out any protein for beans in any menu item.”

Taco Bell Vegan Options

Last year, Taco Bell made meat-free eating much easier with the addition of a “Veggie Mode” button on its digital menus. This option highlights all of the vegetarian items on the menu, and presents the option to customize as vegan.

Last year also saw the launch of an oat-based vegan meat taco at the fast food chain — the Oatrageous Taco.

The new addition featured a crunchy taco with the plant-based meat filling, topped with chipotle sauce, dairy cheese, and lettuce — the meal can be made vegan by ordering without the cheese.
